Paul Johnston Quiz Question: If Capital electrical platform engineering software stated its’ version at the first year of release at 1.0 and we moved through a new number before the decimal point to denote each new version the current version instead of being called 2013.1 would be called what? Answer: By my calculations, I believe it would be Version 9. What’s in it for you? This Blog post is a little bit longer … Read More

Dennis Brophy Low Power Flow Kicks-off Symposium In the world of electronic design automation, as an idea takes hold and works its way from thought to silicon, numerous tools are used by engineers and the like to help bring a good idea to product fruition.  Standards play a key and important role to help move your user information from high-level concepts into the netlists can be realized in silicon.  The IEEE Standards … Read More

Paul Johnston The last entry ended by looking at typical motivations for writing custom code in-house instead of using a commercial package. It is characteristic of these motivations that they are responses to the deficiencies of the commercial offering. Or a tendency to develop in-house code is born from assuming commercial tools do not exist or could not cover all the particular needs you have. Due diligence before … Read More

Dennis Brophy Companion UVM-EA OVM Compatibility Overlay Kit for Available for Download Mentor Graphics has made available its UVM-EA starter kit to promote OVM users’ feedback on UVM. As I wrote in an earlier blog, Accellera has defined specific modifications to OVM 2.1.1 to create UVM-EA.  The Mentor Graphics version of the UVM-EA can be downloaded here.  The UVM-EA starter kits passes all our Questa 6.6 regression … Read More

Paul Johnston Having standards to work to is normal. In the Aerospace and Automotive Electrical and Electronic design realm there is no shortage of specifications. Engineers work to a variety of standards. For example - specifications for conductor sizes and wire materials. Also drawing appearance standards which I referred to in a previous post about how potential users of Capital Harness Systems (Capital) vet available … Read More

Joe Davis Recently, I attended the latest OpenAccess (OA) conference put on by Si2. Attendance this year seemed to be up from last year. Whether the increased attendance was due to the increased adoption that we’ve seen in the industry or the fact that the conference was free this year is unclear. However, it is crystal clear that OA is no longer just a promise, and that adoption has moved from the true early … Read More

Paul Johnston Selecting a new suite of software tools is more than an exercise in having some means of delivering the correct computer aided design outputs for your electrical systems integration (part 4) - although we have seen that is around 25% of the answer to your problems. This project of drafting and evaluating responses to an RFQ is more than this plus ensuring that the solution satisfies your need to adequately … Read More

Paul Johnston Requests for Quotation, Requests for Information come the way of the sales force in Mentor Graphics frequently. Prospective customers ask for testimonials, competence, references and proof of functionality. Following on from my last posting here is what I found.  My experience, my analysis of the data. These requirements in total over all documents I reviewed show a very even split.  Hundreds of individual … Read More
